In Washington DC, Lime, Byrd, and Skip are a couple of the licensed companies that provide tourists and residents with an electric scooter.The appeal of these electric scooters has led to a soar in their usage, but so too have related accidents and injuries. When a collision occurs, you should have a good Lime scooter lawyer in Washington DC on your side.

Basic Laws for Lime Scooter Riders in Washington DC

Scooter companies are sweeping across Washington DC and the U.S. as a whole. However, in many states, including Washington DC, the laws are not very clear to those who hop on a scooter, sees one parked on a sidewalk, or is confronted with one coming at you. According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, electric scooters are within the category of a Personal Mobility Device (PMD). The following are the most up to date laws regarding electric scooters in DC.

  • Electric scooters are not considered to be a motor vehicle.
  • Scooter operators should be at least 16 years of age.  
  • Scooters can be used on sidewalks, but not in the Central Business District.
  • Scooters can be used in the DC bike lanes.
  • Scooter riders do not have to wear a helmet.

Although these laws are a good start, there is plenty of room for error or negligence. Our Lime scooter lawyers in Washington DC have known of many cases to involve moderate to serious injuries because of a collision with a pedestrian, other scooter rider, object, or moving vehicle. Because riders typically do not wear a helmet, the risk of a head injury is high. Some of the common injuries include:

  • Head or brain injuries
  • Neck and spine injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Facial lacerations
  • Road rash
  • Bruising
  • Scarring
  • + More

When a scooter accident is the result of a human error, it may be considered negligence. As a Lime scooter lawyer, we find that many of these electric scooter accidents involve:

  • Distracted drivers
  • Cyclists
  • Mechanical failure
  • Manufacturing defect
  • Poor maintenance

The later reasons for an accident to happen may be related to many scooters being left in random places; thereby, the company does not properly maintain them. In other cases, because these modes of transportation are new, there is a risk of design flaws.

Due to Lime scooter injury cases to be new to the court system as a whole, there could be some challenges involved; however, many of them do have sufficient grounds for pursuing a negligence claim. Get in touch with a Lime scooter lawyer Washington DC recommends by calling Cohen & Cohen.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
